Social Background and Issues
As industrial and economic development proceeds urbanization, our lives have become more convenient and comfortable. At the same time, however, stress and a sense of isolation from society have surfaced as serious issues. In particular, the breakneck speed in the spread of information has created new sources of entertainment and services, but at the same time has generated anxiety and risk as well. Because of the global restraints imposed on daily activities with the spread of COVID-19, face-to-face exchanges between people are diminishing. The quality of communication is changing along with these circumstances. To build a society that is both sound and sustainable, we must build an infrastructure and environment that will enable everyone to live with a feeling of security and safety and develop communication methods that provide mental support and a sense of fulfillment in life.

We believe that photography, the original business of the Fujifilm Group, has the power not only to preserve memories of events but also to add color to our everyday lives, to enrich our lives and occasionally to move people. We have renewed our awareness of the power of photographs to enrich lives and we will contribute to strengthen relationships between people and enrich everyday life by developing and marketing new products and services. Using technologies that were created from manufacturing photographic film to develop the infrastructure, we are contributing to preserving culture and history, as well as information that is vital to society, and to developing a society that is safe, with less crime and fewer accidents.
